It's amazing to see an airline that's making moves to increase passenger comfort, rather than degrade it, and cut costs *cough* BA *cough* BA was one of the last airlines to decide to make the change to 10 a...

The weekly charter flight routing LGW-MAN-BGR-LAX continued to be operated by Caledonian. As you said the 747 briefly operated in the late 1980s, and a f...
